Terms and Conditions & Data Protection
Any use of this website including any transactions you make is subject to our terms and conditions below. Please read through these terms and conditions carefully before using this website and print or save a copy for future reference.
These terms and conditions shall apply to the contract to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions and no variation to these conditions shall be binding unless agreed in writing by an authorised representative.
1. Prices and Taxes
1.1. The prices shown for all products on our website are in GBP and include VAT and delivery to UK Mainland. We add a small per order charge of GBP 4.13 net for Packaging, Handling & Insurance.
1.2. Delivery to Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands (postcodes GY (Guernsey), JE (Jersey) and IM (Isle of Man)) and outside of the United Kingdom is not free of charge. Please see our information page on shipping costs for detailed information. If applicable, delivery charges are also shown in Checkout before you are asked to confirm you order.
1.3. For any orders to be returned (excluding damaged or faulty merchandise), we will offer a courier pick up and return service at the expense of the customer. A standard collection fee of GBP 16.50 will be used for all warehouse returns up to 32 kg within the EU. This fee corresponds to the current courier company rate.
2. Product Descriptions and Pictures
2.1. Every effort has been made to ensure the descriptions and price of goods are correct. All sizes and measurements are approximate but we do try to make sure that they are as accurate as possible. We therefore allow a size tolerance of +/- 5% for both custom/bespoke and standard size products. Any additional furniture or decoration included in photographs are expressly excluded from sale.
2.2. Photographs are for illustrative purposes only. The colour of goods may vary slightly from that shown on the website due to limitations of browser software, monitors and colour as well as resolution settings. If you require a specific colour please contact us before making the purchase indicating the Pantone colour code required and we will make any effort to accommodate for your requirement. The Pantone Color Matching System is a standard colour reproduction system. Manufacturers in different locations can refer to the Pantone system to make sure colours match the customer's requirement.
2.3. Many of our products are made from natural fibres (e.g. sisal, cotton) and colours may vary slightly from one production batch to another or due to technical changes. Such differences do not constitute a product fault unless a contract for sale by sample has been agreed on by both parties.
3. Order Policy
3.1. If you want to place an order for one or more of the products advertised on our website click the “Add to Basket” button on the item’s product detail page. You can access your shopping basket and its contents at all times by clicking on the shopping basket symbol in the top right hand corner on each of our websites. You can remove or add products from and to your shopping basket at any time. Once you are happy with the content of your shopping basket you can proceed to Checkout by clicking on the Checkout button. You will then be asked to enter your address and payment information and to finally review and confirm your order. Confirmation of your order constitutes a binding offer to purchase the selected products.
3.2. We will acknowledge receipt of your order by sending you an automatically generated email. This is only an acknowledgment of receipt and no binding contract will be formed unless and until we accept your order by separate email or by dispatching standard size products within five business days or custom size products within two weeks.
3.3. The contractual language is English.
3.4. We store the contract's content and will send you the details of your order as well as our general terms via email. You can also access your order information online in your customer login area in case you registered a customer account during checkout.
4. Delivery Policy & Returns
4.1. We deliver to the United Kingdom and also a selection of Member States of the European Union. We do not deliver to countries outside of the European Union.
4.2. Your order will be processed as soon as it is received. We will deliver the goods ordered by you to the address you give us for delivery at the time you submit your order.
4.3. In stock items are dispatched within 48 hours of your order. Delivery time information is available on all product pages where items are not in stock. Custom orders (i.e. customised sizes and/or customised designs) are dispatched within two weeks unless stated otherwise on the product detail page. We operate several warehouses within the European Union and guarantee that almost all of our products are in stock at all times. If the product of your choice is currently unavailable in the UK it will be dispatched from another warehouse free of charge and with priority service (arriving 2-3 days later) unless you instruct us differently in writing together with your order.
4.4 Large quantity orders may be sent by pallet and are usually dispatched within 5 working days. All pallet deliveries take place as a standard ‘curbside delivery’ unless agreed upon otherwise at the time of purchase. We reserve the right to charge the customer for any additional costs which may be incurred due to failed or refused deliveries.
4.5. A signature will be required on delivery of the goods to you. Receipt of a signature at the delivery address will be proof that the order has been delivered to you. Our courier may leave the products with a neighbour unless you instruct us differently in writing together with your order.
4.6. We are not responsible for any delay in delivery caused by the unavailability of someone to take delivery of the products. It is your responsibility to contact the post office or courier company as applicable to arrange the collection or delivery of products that could not be delivered because you were unavailable. We reserve the right to charge for any costs ammounted a failed delivery attempt and or and returns for the reason of incorrectly provided delivery information.
4.7. Unless expressly agreed otherwise in writing we do not guarantee of any specific delivery date and/or time.
4.8. If you wish to return an order, please do not send the item back to us before first obtaining a reference number and related return instructions from one of our customer service agents. In the event of an arranged collection, a collection charge will be arranged beforehand which will then be deducted from your refund. Please note that we will not be held accountable for any additional charges that are a result of any failed collection attempts. We may also send return instructions which would include a return postage slip, allowing the customer to return their order at their own cost.
5. Delayed, Damaged and Incomplete Deliveries
5.1 Please contact us if your products have not arrived within one week. We are able to trace couriered items easily and can determine what has happened. We will deal with any claims and send a new item to you. Rather than you having to claim back your money from Royal Mail, we will dispatch a new item immediately or refund your purchase.
5.2. Every effort is made to ensure that your products are delivered in perfect condition. Please inspect your goods immediately upon delivery and either have the driver of the courier company sign for a damaged delivery or do not accept the delivery. If you take delivery of a damaged item you can return the item to us for exchange or full money refund. Damaged or faulty goods must be reported to us immediately, either by phone, fax or email. We will then make further arrangements with you.
5.3. In case you receive an incorrect item please write to us and we will arrange for a speedy delivery of the correct item to you. Or, if you would like to purchase the item from another merchant, we will refund your money with no quibbles. We automatically weigh each product before it is dispatched and record its weight. We can easily tell from the total weight of the shipment whether it was incomplete. We will immediately expedite a speedy delivery of the missing item to you.
5.4. If after 30 days you believe an item you have received may be faulty, that item may be returned for assessment. An investigation would then be carried out to determine the cause of any faults. If we conclude that an item is faulty, we will then issue a full refund for that purchase.
6.1. We accept payment by credit and debit card (VISA, Mastercard), Maestro, PayPal and bank transfer (BACS). You may select any payment method without extra charges.
6.2. We will not take payment from you until we accepted your order and your products are ready to be dispatched. Please ensure that the account you use for payments is able to complete the transaction as we are unable to accept liability for any banking or interest charges incurred as a result of a payment that cannot be completed. We reserve the right to pass on any charges incurred by ourselves for any payments rejected by your bank or card issuer.
6.3. You agree not to invoke a credit card chargeback unless we have been informed in writing of your intention to do so and we have been given a reasonable period of time of no less than seven working days to rectify the issue to your satisfaction. You will be liable for a any charges we incur plus a reasonable administration cost for any unjustified chargebacks. Credit card protection regulations ensure your account is automatically credited when a chargeback is issued. If a refund has already been made, a further intentional chargeback will be considered theft or fraud and appropriate legal action may be taken against you.
6.4. If your order is placed via purchase order, or in request for payment via bank transfer (BACS) or cheque, we reserve the right to postpone dispatch until payment is received. Held orders may be cancelled after 14 days if payment is not received. Payments for credit orders must be paid within 30 days of the invoice issue date.
6.5. For late payments over 30 days, we have a statutory right to claim recovery costs and interest up to 8.50%. Consumer (non-business) customers may also be subject to interest rates of up to 8.5% if payment is not received within 30 days of their order being placed. We also retain the right to claim the costs of recovery.
7. Right to Cancel
7.1. You have the right to cancel the purchase of a good without having to give a reason at any time within the “cooling off period” of 14 (fourteen) working days, beginning on the day after you receive the goods.

7.2. If you are in possession of the goods you are under the duty to retain them and take reasonable care of them. You must send the goods back to the warehouse they were dispatched from in their original condition at your own cost (unless we delivered the item to you in error or the item is damaged or defective) as soon as possible once you have cancelled the contract. We reserve the right to make a charge not exceeding our direct costs of recovering the goods if you do not return the goods or return them at our expense.
7.3. In case we agree to collect the goods, you must make the goods available for collection in their original condition. You are responsible for any collection charges we incur. Detailed information on collection charges are available here.

15. Data Protection
We regard Data Protection as one of the most important yet underestimated guarantees in online shopping. We are commited to protecting your privacy and personal information at all times.

We will contact you by email or by telephone if any problems occur regarding delivery of the goods to you. We may use your email address to provide you with information on products, services, promotions and special offers. You can unsubscribe from this service at any point.
Upon your written request, we will (within 40 days of receiving such a request) supply to you details of the personal information which we hold on you. You must explain to us clearly the information you require to be supplied.
